Ki Mobility’s flagship product, the Catalyst 5 has since redefined the ultra-lightweight folding market by raising the bar in weight, performance, durability and functionality. Weighing in at 23lbs and constructed from ultra-lightweight 7000 series aluminum, the Catalyst 5 is arguably the best choice in high-performance folding wheelchairs. With our largest selection of options to help you customize and configure your chair, the Catalyst 5 makes daily life easier, no matter what the day brings.
Weighing in at a mere 14.2 lb. transport weight*, Catalyst 5 is the lightest and strongest folding wheelchair on the market with a 300 lb. standard weight capacity! A heavy duty option is also available.
*Transport Weight: 16×16 standard configuration. Without rear wheels and no footrests. For your reference, a standard pair of 24” spoke wheels w/ a 1” high pressure tire and aluminum hand rim weighs 6.064 lbs.
Catalyst 5 takes advantage of all of the “Catalyst Difference” design features to allow you to fit, adjust and ride with confidence. A defining characteristic of each chair is its axle plate which we will highlight below.
With the Catalyst 5 you have the ability to adjust your Center of Gravity (CG), a critical design criteria for a K0005 class chair. Both axle plate options, standard and curved, are machined from Billet 6061-T6 aluminum and offer finite adjustment of the CG and rear seat height. 3/16″ of CG adjustment over a 3 ½” range is a snap with the innovative 3D locking index washer design. It only requires one wrench. The standard axle plate offers 1″ adjustments in rear-seat height and 1° adjustments of wheel camber while the curved axle plate offers a more discrete ½” of fine tuning adjustments in the rear seat.
Catalyst 5 offers the option of a swing away front end featuring our patented footrests or 70° or 80° fixed frames. The swing away hangers come in 4 bends (60°, 70°, 80° & 90°) are light and easy to use and so strong we offer a lifetime warranty.
Transit Tested and approved. User weight capacity up to 300lbs.
The Catalyst 5 offers Ki Mobility’s full line of specially designed Ki spoke wheels with precision machined hubs and hard anodized handrims. Utilizing straight pull spokes this wheel promotes a stiffer and stronger wheel while the hard anodize handrim is resistant to scratching so they keep that “NEW” look longer. We also offer the full array of industry standard wheels and casters such as Spinergy, Natural Fit, Frog Legs and Topolino.
Ki Mobility proudly offers the ultra-sleek and lightweight X-Coretm mags. These wheels have far greater stiffness and rigidity than conventional mags while keeping the weight to only 1 lb. more than spokes. Now available in 20″, 22″ and 24″.
